Women on the Move II (2019-2020)
The partners of the 14-month project organized under the European Union and Republic of Turkey-Civil Society Dialogue IV Grant Scheme are Eurocultura from Italy and the UK's RETAS Association.
The objectives of the project are:
- Achieving experience-sharing and cooperation between TR and European CSOs by jointly developing social mediation techniques that can be used by project partners to alleviate the social tension between refugee and local groups, thus ensuring mutual understanding and social cohesion.
- Increasing the knowledge of refugee women about their legal rights, developing an awareness among them on what is violence against women (VAW) and what are the legal mechanisms available in case they are victims of such violence and increase their access to legal services,
- Increasing bilateral exchanges and cooperation between Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Turkey and the EU at the local, regional and national levels by informing them about funding opportunities provided by the EU.
